Default RK3188 VitalASC Tablet

Hey everyone!

So I have searched high and low for an answer to this problem. I hope I am posting in the correct place. I just got a VitalASC ST1011 tablet and I am looking for a way to put a custom ROM on it. I was able to root it and it did root correctly, but there is absolutely nothing on this exact tablet for ROMs. My question is, are most RK 3188 tablets in the same category? Like will my tablet work with most 3188 ROMs?

Thanks guys!

The answer is NO, since the hardware is different like bluetooth/wifi/bootloader/file structure etc... for example a 3188 with ap6120 wifi chip is not the same as 3188 with MTK wifi chip.

I had thought so. The thing is I am used to rooting and messing with big brand devices like my S3 and such. Is there any way for me to find out what ROMs will work on my device?

I'm sorry but there are none custom rom support for this device or very very limited. Just a suggestion for future reference, if you like custom rom and such, you should investigate for rom support first before purchase the device. Maybe someone out there who would know some forum that can support this, please chime in. In the mean time you just have to wait and see....

Sadly I had no choice. It was a surprise birthday gift from my parents. It's all good though! It's not a bad tablet, I just like custom ROMs. I appreciate the help though!
